Sky”s the limit, at least in the short term…

On the contrary, the company’s net profits contracted 53.3%, to 119 million euros ($0.15 per share). Compared to the 255 million profit ($0.33 / share) gained in the same period of the previous year.

In comparable terms, the adjusted profit per share stood at $0.25 per share. A year ago, this stood at $0.31 per share. It is also below the $0.29 advanced by the market consensus.

The results published by the company offer other reasons for optimism. Investors’ returns today are driven to a value they had run away from in their previous results presentation.
